One morning when I went to the fruit stand to buy a fruit salad for breakfast, the lady told me her daughter was going to be in the parade. I asked her where it would be and when. The girls tended to all be butterflies because Patzcuaro is about a four hour drive from the Monarch butterfly reserve. There is more variation in the boys’ costumes.
I cannot figure out why they make the boys play bugles. It is so hard to hit the right note on a bugle as you hear in the video.
